Good Arrows Irvine Welsh's TV Directorial Debut

 
Good friends of ZANI, Irvine Welsh & Dean Cavanagh are about to start filming Good Arrows, the first film from their production company Jawbone. Irvine Welsh has been a busy lad lately: his new novel Crime has hit the shelves running and he's about to start work on a prequel to Trainspotting set in the early 1980's. Good Arrows sees Cavanagh and Welsh collaborating again after having made the BAFTA nominated Dose for BBC3 and the critically acclaimed Wedding Belles for CHANNEL 4.
